Babies both passed their BPP's within 3 minutes today and my weight was great (29 pound gain at 33 weeks and 1 day).
I got myself a little lecture regarding my finger poking for gestational diabetes. I don't do it after every meal, which including the fasting number, is 4 times a day. I do it 3 times a day usually, which I feel is sufficient. The babies are healthy and I am healthy so who cares about one little pricking a day right?
The perinatal specialist does! She asked me if I am aware how many times I should be testing. I said yes, 3 or maybe 4. No, she says, 4 times! 4 times everyday!
She told me she would really like it if I followed directions and did it 4 times a day.
I smiled and said okay.
In my mind my response was "Oh, you would really like it if I followed directions would you? I would really like a money tree in the backyard and a donut in my mouth but we don't always get what we want, do we? I would also really like it if you would freaking measure my babies today so I can stop worrying about if Ever has caught up like she is supposed to. I would also like it if you didn't charge me $30 per visit for appointments that take 3 minutes."
I doubt I will actually start testing the whole 4 times a day everyday, but if I actually said these things to her she would not smile and say okay like I did, so I consider us even. :)
Thanks for the responses yesterday! Those situations were really weighing heavy on my mind last night. I hate it when bad things happen to good people. Even outside of infertility, I never tell anyone about things being meant to be because it doesn't help and I don't believe it. But that's how I feel, I like to know if others feel the same so thank you for lending your perspective!!
